Deployment objects can be used to define the assignment of software artifacts to execution environments. In Visual Studio Ultimate, deployment objects are used to link artifacts to use cases. For more information, see UML Use Case Diagrams: Reference and UML Use Case Diagrams: Guidelines. For more information about the UML API, see Extending UML Models and Diagrams.
The types and properties defined in this namespace correspond to those defined in the UML Specification. In addition, extension methods are defined on many of the types in this namespace. For more information, see Microsoft.VisualStudio.ArchitectureTools.Extensibility.Uml.
